With just two weeks to go until Christmas Day, the Seaport Association in Norwalk says it has made sure there is no “Claus” for alarm come Dec. 25 by offering a collection of gift certificates, via an online store. All gift certificates are available by calling 203-838-9444 or clicking online here.
The association says there is no time like the present to shop its collection of gift certificates that are sure to please foodies, and those that enjoy on the water cruises with the added bonus of songs, sunset and a historic lighthouse.
A gift honoring the past with a special Seaport Legacy Brick is always appreciated. The Seaport’s Legacy Brick program allows families and friends to etch their name into the history of Sheffield Island and Sheffield Island Lighthouse. Legacy bricks can be customized and commemorate a treasured individual, a milestone, or immortalize your family name by being part of the walkway entrance to the Lighthouse. Legacy Bricks come in two sizes 4×4 @ $100 and 8×8 @ $199.
For foodies there are certificates for clambakes that take place in the newly constructed timber pavilion during the months of July and August. This gift certificate includes a cruise to Sheffield Island, and an authentic New England clambake set against the backdrop of the historic Sheffield Island Lighthouse on our private island. Clambakes are $79 per person a $65 option is also available. The clambakes take every Thursday night, July through August.
If you have a music lover on your gift list, check out the Acoustic Cruise gift certificate and for those that enjoy sunset on the water the Friday and Saturday night sunset cruises are the ideal way to enjoy a summer weekend. There is also a family four pack being offered that includes a cruise to Sheffield Island and tour of the Lighthouse and Light keepers’ cottage for two adults and two children for $70.
If you are looking for the truly extraordinary, book the entire island and ferry for your next soiree, corporate outing, or wedding. New this year the Seaport Association is offering a four-hour rental of Sheffield Island including transportation for 49 people at $2,500. The Seaport’s staff will assist with all catering needs, asking why rent a room or banquet hall when you can rent your own private island and boat?
